EHRC – ‘What to do if you’re worried about racism: EU referendum factsheet’

What to do if you’re worried about racism: EU referendum factsheet was published by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) in July 2016. It is part of a new initiative with a coalition of business organisations, to call on employers to show leadership in challenging intolerance and to ensure their employees who may be experiencing racism in the workplace feel supported.

In addition to this, the Commission has publicly called for a full-scale review of Britain’s hate crime strategy and a new national drive to defeat the dramatic rise in race hate crime.

Blogs by David Isaac, the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) Chair, and Rebecca Hilsenrath, EHRC Chief Executive, talk about the need for a ‘zero tolerance approach’ to hate crime and the need to stand together to resist racism.

The factsheet and blogs were published in July 2016 in response to the reported rise in incidents of hate crime and racist abuse following the EU referendum.
